The Best is Yet to Come

When I was  a teenager, I remember teachers telling us all to make the most of our school days. “These are the best years of your life,” they would say. It used to scare me, that life wouldn’t get better than trying to use a cocktail of at least five different spot creams (and sometimes tooth paste) to get rid of acne, and not being old enough to wear contacts. Was the school where even girls were forced to wear a blazer and tie really as good as it got?

These days it worries me, that for some people, life truly peaked at fifteen. Probably before they met the love of their life and started a family. Before they had very much to opportunity to achieve very much. When most of there life, from what they wore to where the spent there time to what they ate was dictated to them. These were the best years of their life? I honestly feel sorry for people like this.

Sure, now as an adult, I have to pay bills, I have go to work, I have other responsibilities. But I don’t see these as set backs, I see these as part of the adventure.

The whole world is open to me, I could completely change career, or move to the other side of the world.

Life is an adventure. God wants it to be that way. Believe it or not he actually wants us to have fun. He actually wants us to achieve things. He wants us to make a difference in this world, he wants us to truly live life.

No matter how old we are, if we let God take control of our life the best is yet to come

He has so much more for us  adventure, more blessing, more of him to know, and more LIFE.

There is so much more. More than we can ever know or imagine, more in this life, and more in the next.

  1. That’s so true! How could it be bliss to be forced to wear ugly boy shoes and be told on a 3 week trip to the blazing hot Caribbean that I must wear long white socks the entire time?

    My mum was scared that if I acted normal by wearing bare feet in sandals like everyone else, somehow I would be the unfortunate one to get ‘jiggers in my foot’. So everywhere we went, nobody took any notice of my 14 yr old sister, but pointed at my legs and laughed like a hyena.

    Yes, you are right, despite the bills and other responsibilities, at least we have the freedom to do what we want, go where we want and most importantly, WEAR what we want!

  2. I always worried about this too! I found my life is sooo much better now that I’m in college and a part of a church. I always tell the young students I work with if they’re struggling that things actually get better!
